Grammy and Dove Award Winner Mylon Le Fevre Joins Elvis Week Line Up
July 23, 2013
Grammy and Dove Award winner Mylon Le Fevre will be making a special guest appearance during Elvis Week! Fans can purchase tickets to see Le Fevre, along with former members of J.D. Sumner and the Stamps Quartet and DJ Fontana, during the "Official Elvis Insiders Event" taking place on August 17.
Le Fevre was only 17 years old and in the Army when he wrote his first song, "Without Him." He was performing that song on stage at a Gospel convention in Memphis, when unbeknownst to him, Elvis Presley was there. After the concert, Elvis asked to meet Mylon, and shortly thereafter, Elvis recorded the song for his album, "How Great Thou Art." From this point on, Le Fevre embarked on a rock and roll journey that he documents in his new book “Live Forever,”
featuring more than 100 photos, many of which have never been seen before.
Mylon was born into the pioneering Southern Gospel family, The Le Fevre's, and he spent some time as a member of the famed Stamps Quartet. He has recorded and performed with Eric Clapton, Elton John, Billy Joel, and The Who, among many others. In 2005, Mylon was inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame, and in 2007, he was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.
